Understand the influence of material performance properties in end-product safety requirements.
The safety and performance requirements for end products starts by selecting the right materials in advance — materials that have already been tested and validated to meet the specifications and safety criteria required for the life of the end product. But what happens when the properties of those plastic materials changes? How will that impact end-product performance?
Join UL’s plastics experts the second Wednesday of the month from February through May as they review and discuss how such changes can impact plastics performance properties to help you make better, more informed decisions in testing and selecting plastics for end-use applications.
